Howdy,

Wondering if anyone has a hydrogen booster system on their vehicle or knows someone using one?

I bought a system a while ago, first purchase off ebay..... mongrel never sent me proper instructions amongst other delays etc so I have never installed it.
But am thinking about it for the diesel ute as there is no sensors to worry about. (I bought to install on a V6 VY but it"s sensored up and needs to be "tricked" properly- i gave up on that one for the time being.
I think i might need to do something about the timing of diesel injectors, but not sure what.

The mongrel i bought off said there were trials going on in some mining trucks, with promising results. Anyone know about this?

I am happy that these systems work, but obviously with hydrogen involved.... Hydrogen boosters on vehicles. Get better mileage. Bom things need to be right!!

Interested in thoughts.

Cheers.

PS: here is someone in Vic apparently doing some legal installs.

I actually made a dry cell one a few years agao and set it up on my 2.7 turbo diesel nissan and I did feel that it made the engine run smoother and after a couple of tanks I came to the conclusion that there was really something in it. I took it off only because my dodgy wiring was not up to the job. I have been running my car on waste vege oil for a few years so I haven't got my finger out and wire it up correctly.
Look up dry cells they are more effecient than the steel inside pvc types.

Artrix, how do run the use vegie oil, is it just a filter and warm up to a better viscosity job?

the problem with the lpg boost is that a few years ago when i looked into it you had to do 160000-200000ks to break even on the installation costs

Compressed natural gas -CNG.
What about a system where i can fill up from the house supply? System for LPG would be able to be modified a bit I guess.
Might look into that a bit more...
That would get the oil ompanys wriggling to get me in trouble I am sure.

Good thought, but because of the low pressure from your meter you would not be able to get the gas into your vehicles cylinder (minimal amount anyhow), best way to fill another cylinder is draw liquid not gas. (like the blue top lpg cylinder, which draws liquid.)

easy to do conversions, usually only jet sizes and/or regulators depending on the 'heat value' of the heating medium being used.

Petroleum companies would be the least of your problem if you started messing around like that!!

Hi mate I have been running on filtered waste vege oil for over 2 years and the engine is fine,still doesn't burn engine oil between changes. I get the oil and filter it and add unleaded petrol (20 litres of oil to 2.5 litres of ulp) I then filter it again and toss it in......so far only had to change fuel filter 4 times in 2 years. Its an o;d car but it seems to run ok.

So artrix, what does it smell like? fish & chips? donuts? kfc? or is it spicy like pappadums etc Hydrogen boosters on vehicles. Get better mileage. Lol
You would have a good idea how often the take aways change their oil eh?!!

Back to CNG, i was thinking i would run a compressor & mini tank doohicky device to fuel directly to the car tank.... i wouldn't just knock something up in the garage in this regard....Hydrogen boosters on vehicles. Get better mileage. Bom

I have to research into running CNG though, there's something with it like it runs hotter or something, i forget.

CNG has a higher heat value than LPG, therefore you can run lower pressures, or in a combustion chamber for example you can produce the same energy from a lesser amount of fuel.

have a read of these....interesting.

I like the use of vegie oil!! There is a bio diesel plant being built in Adelaide so I presume that bio diesel will soon be available at the pump.

There is a definate change of exhaust smell but as I am in the car I dont really notice it.
Was in a drive thru at mcdonalds once and the kid in the window mentione my car smelled funny!
One thing I have noticed is that oil from a chicken shop is one I avoid the amount of fat that comes off during the filtering is too much for me to bother with.

mmmmmmm, chicken.... Hydrogen boosters on vehicles. Get better mileage. Icon_porc

Well, the hard work has been done for me in regards to supplementing the diesel with natural gas... http://www.autoweb.com.au/cms/A_50121/title_Natural%20Gas%20Falcon%20Production%20Starts/newsarticle.html

Seems like it's not worth mucking about with at only a 33% discount to lpg (they don't talk about natural gas prices though in this example....)
Shall stick with hydrogen or lpg stuff.

Artrix, how do you get on getting used vegie oil. I thought there were companies going around paying for the oil and to collect it, maybe thats just in the big smokes?

Cheers.

I reckon that I've seen city busses that run on CNG, not sure if I saw this in Adelaide or Perth??
Can someone clarify this?

I have a supply that I pick up , about 60 litres a week.
If you front up to a small business a lot just put it back in the cans it comes in and stockpile it out the back.
Ask them and sometimes they see it as you taking away a problem and they are happy to let you have it

Hi Goldstalker, that would be right here in Brissie - not sure about other cities. The mayor here has a plan to replace all diesel busses with CNG - much cheaper to run.

Government buses in sydney were running cng, as the link CLICKY says, back in 97 there were 90 or so natural gas filling stations registered, although they were not public i belive just fleet stuff like government buses etc,, a wine train was cng also.
I would imagine there is more, but they are probably still private fleet jobs.

www.myphill.com well well, you can buy a home filler from here apparently!!! not cheap though and takes several hours to fill a tank.... but it does say home gas is cheaper than the filling stations

Interesting thread,

This topic pops up all over the place, anywhere where blokes get together. Hydrogen boosters on vehicles. Get better mileage. Icon_cool

There is no way that a vehicle can run better or more economically than one that is properly maintained and tuned to the manufacturers original specifications.

It can be made to run more "cheaply" by installing a well designed LPG conversion, by a registered installer of course......DIY from the wreckers is not worth considering......unless you can find an authorised installer willing to risk his future by prostituting his accreditation by fitting a compliance plate to a bodgy job. Hydrogen boosters on vehicles. Get better mileage. Icon_razz

As for the DIY Pickle jars bolted to the firewall and hooked into your battery to "generate" sufficient "Browns Gas" to make a valid difference to the vehicles performance.......you would do just as well to connect your battery vent system to the intake system.....that produces hydrogen as part of its reaction to alternator input Hydrogen boosters on vehicles. Get better mileage. Icon_wink Hydrogen boosters on vehicles. Get better mileage. Icon_biggrin

Just my considered (qualified) opinion ...Fella's

Hey Artrix, not a bad idea. This site is the best i have found as far as kitted products. http://hydrogengarage.com/ it is american though...

Do you have a pulse width modulator to control the frequency supplied?
Apparently the right frequency acts something like the resonant frequency and it boils hydrogen out like crazy, you can then turn the amp supply down to achieve the desired hydrogen output. This is how power input can beat power output.
Also, when the alternator is spinning, is it giving out the same all the time (rev dependant) or will the output change if the demand rises. What i mean is, by using this system, will it wear your alternator out quicker?

I know there are sceptics out there, but this technology has been around for years, but its the right frequency that makes it energy friendly and that wasn't discovered till late last century....

I really think on a diesel its a great idea as it also reduces the amount of carbon in exhaust, thus the engine oil should be a bit cleaner.
A bit of 2 stroke oil in the fuel also, might be a lubed power machine then!!

Good luck.

Well I must admit that my cell was just one I put together myself and as I had a basic diesel I just wired it up and plumbed it into the air intake just before the turbo.
I never had a pwm I thought they were only needed with a wet cell. My design had 17 or 19 plates and I mounted it on the bumber in clear air. I had a 2 litre reservoir under the bonnet and a bubbler off that filed with vinegar to neutralize any left over acidic vapours as I used koh as an electrolyte. With a 2 litre reservoir the fluid circulated in and out of the cell and I found that heat wasn't an issue as the cell only held a cup full of water at any time and it was pumped out regularly. I controlled the amps it used by adding more or less koh. I did a test and I think it was producing 1.5 litres a minute.
I must put it back on ,this thread has put some interest back into the thing. I run my diesel on waste vege oil so I have very cheap motoring anyway.
cheers

Been reading that vegie forum most of the day, gave up on it years ago cause you couldnt make it (biodiesel) cheap enough due to ethanol or methanol cost forget which and was hard to get. Bit different now i think.
I bought the book " From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank" and all...

Considered making bio deisel but couldn't be bothered with all the mucking about.
Just blend it with ULP and off you go......as long as you have a injector pump that can handle it.

have got hho on my cruiser plus running on cooking oil,hho gives more pickup plus cruises a lot better on the flat not much difference on hills .have got it mounted on bull bar which keeps it cool,also has a pwm that i run at 15 amp,have not did ecconomy test yet,hho also leaves water when it burns which decarbons your engine ,this should increase engine life.also have solar panels on roof that will make batterys last longer,3x5watt,reckon it would kill me if i had to pull in to a servo and buy fuel.
